No matter where you’re coming from, flying can be a pleasurable experience if you’re prepared. Take a peek at these handy travel tips that will get your Sibu holiday started on the right note.What to pack in your hand luggage:
- The trick to having a pain-free flight experience is to pack ahead. So, let’s start with the essentials: passport, boarding pass, credit cards and medications. Next, bring on board items that’ll help while away those hours, like some electronic devices or a few magazines. You’ll also want to bring your chargers, a comfy neck pillow and a pair of noise-cancelling headphones. And of course, be sure to chuck in toiletry items like a toothbrush, lip balm and a fresh change of clothes.
Do not pack the following items in your hand luggage:
- Pack all your full-sized bottles of shampoo and conditioner in your checked baggage. Any liquids in your carry-on bag larger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) will be confiscated by authorities. Sharp objects, like your beloved Swiss Army knife, and products which are flammable or explosive, such as flares, chemicals agents and matches, are also prohibited.
What to wear on a flight:
- Your goal here is to feel as comfortable as you can. Layer up with loose, natural-fibre clothing and remember to bring a pullover in case it gets cold in the cabin. Always opt for flat, slightly roomy shoes as it’s possible that your feet and ankles will swell during the flight. Leave the stilettos and heavy boots in your luggage.
- The result of sustained periods of immobility, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition that can affect some passengers on long-haul flights. The good news is there are ways to reduce your risk of developing it. Keep your fluids up, walk around the cabin whenever possible and wear compression tights or socks.
